“The war was on, and food was ra­tioned. There were sel­dom any sweets ex­cept on spe­cial oc­ca­sions. We would al­ways be ex­cited to see Side Sode’s wagon com­ing down the road. Poor old Prince was worn out as he had to haul the wagon up another long hill to our farm. My grand­fa­ther and yours were at the wagon when my grand­mother came out. She bought a brown cot­ton dress with orange flow­ers. We three kids were there, of course, and just be­fore he closed up, your grand­fa­ther reached in the back and took out a choco­late bar. He broke it into three pieces and gave us each a piece. I am now 85 years old and still re­mem­ber that day. We were in sev­enth heaven! I thought you would like to hear from that lit­tle girl who re­mem­bered your grand­fa­ther.”

Gwen’s let­ter made me smile and I wanted to ex­tend a thank you to Our Canada— once again you have al­lowed peo­ple who oth­er­wise wouldn’t have the op­por­tu­nity, to con­nect! Su­san Dun­can, Ch­ester, N. S.
